There are clear advantages for singles who do not drink alcohol in comparison to those who do. I’ll present these facts soon, but first a little on my drinking history.
I have no room to talk since I drank an ocean of beer during my early dating heyday. But looking back, and now that I’m a bit wiser, I can definitely see the advantages for singles who do not drink alcohol. Do I have any non-drinking experience in social and romantic situations? Yes! The social events were the most growth producing. The romantic activities were the best of my life by far. Not even close. Magnificent! 😀

Isn’t alcohol wonderful stuff? In truth, it’s a poison. It offers no physical, mental, social, or romantic benefits whatsoever.
